    Wonderful experience, and you obviously can’t beat the view. Plentiful drink menu. Got the crabcakes, which were wonderful. My wife’s fillet and scallops were perfect, my halibut was delicious and filling. They even gave us something special for our 25th anniversary. Service was on point and excellent. Would never hesitate to come back here again, especially for a special occasion.

    We came here for our last trip to the lake and I made sure to reserve a table for our trip this year as well. The food was fantastic and our server Sarah was wonderful. We asked to reserve a table outside and the restaurant responded that outside tables were first come first served but they would ensure we had a lakeside view. Not a problem. We were sat in the middle of the restaurant and not near a window so that was a bit of a bummer. But we will definitely be back for our next trip.

    I made reservations and we got seated right away. They offered us one seat but they could tell that we weren’t quite happy with it so they offered us another table that was outside & quiet. The only negative was they were out of the meat that my mom wanted & it was Mother’s Day so she had to pick another choice which was still very good.

    Steaks were excellent and veggies were very good. Window table provided a great view of the lake. Took advantage of the Mother’s Day gift cards so even saved a little money! Celebrated a birthday so Baxter’s provided the desert and it was very good too. Will definitely be back another time because we love this place!

    We started with the shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were large and fresh. The cocktail sauce was very good and had an acceptable amount of horseradish. I had the Baxter’s Rib-Eye with baked potato and I added a lobster tail. The steak was perfectly cooked and had a good deal of marbling. The baked potato was good size and moist. I was very pleased with the lobster tail that I had added. It was sweet and tender.

    Was disappointed because normally it is really good and I took a friend from out of state. My mashed potatoes were cold, my filet was pretty much flavorless. The asparagus was ok, nothing special. It was a mediocre experience and I had anticipated and expected more.

Everyone enjoyed their cocktails and meals and the birthday girl was surprised with a photo taken of her and a birthday dessert on the house. Great service, reasonable prices, food was delicious and wonderful atmosphere with view of the lake of the Ozarks. Highly recommend!

    Went to Baxters for our Anniversary - they accommodated us with a window table. Erik our waiter was wonderful, attentive and made great suggestions. The food - as always - was wonderful. We ate early so the restaurant was fairly quiet -As always a great experience and we always recommend it to our friends.

    Everything was great! Food, atmosphere, view, service, quality of food and even price. We don't drink alcohol so nothing excessive $$$. The steaks are delicious and juicy and I usually don't have steak but last time we ate here I had a bite of my husband's and wished I had got one so I did this time. Go early or it'll be busy.

Ashley is a great hostess and Hanni a fantastic waitress. Nothing is too much trouble and it makes a special occasion just that. We are very grateful, always!

Everyone enjoyed the meal and we were able to have conversations because the room was not loud. We enjoyed the food, ambiance and our friends, we will all be back.

    We arrived early and waited in the bar. The service there was wonderful. Our dining table had a beautiful view of the lake. The food was great, especially the Halibut, which was exceptional. The service was very efficient and organized. We could tell our waitress worked very hard, but a smile and friendly word goes a long way.
